If you are planning to implement any electronic moving display system that is activated by movements in its surroundings then just have a look on the project posted by Jer from Volts and Bytes, where an Atmega8 is used to activate a Sure Electronics 0832 LED matrix display when motion is detected by the attached PIR sensor. Check the link […]

Embedds admin in his post has perfectly written: “From semiconductor physics we know that semiconductor junction when exposed to light becomes more conductive. So when LED cathode is connected to +5V and anode to 0V it simply charges as capacitor.Then program switches anode pin to high Z input and read its state. Depending on time taken […]
Candle light is usually warm and waves slowly with the random oscillations of the air in the surrounding environment. It should be possible to simulate the effect of a candle with a small electronic circuit that generates random patterns or numbers. Here is a simple such circuit shared by Embedds member. To create the candle effect […]
If you have a show car the here is an interesting project for you. You can build your own RGB LED Vehicle Turn Signals that StarfireMX developed for his Ford Mustang. The system used a number of Arduino based controllers and XBee wireless devices to allow remote control of the modes and color selections. Starfiretech […]
One crazy Spinning LED Globe is constructed by Csaba Bleuer, a friend of Hackedgadgets member Alan Parekh. You can build this project using ATMega Microcontroller and referring to Csaba’s hand drawn schematic. The jaw-drooping display effect is created by a program BmpToAscii. In this project the image is displayed using the ascii code, which gives an effect of rotating globe. To further explain the […]
JustDIY shared a powerful spot light consisting of three 200+ lumen neutral-white Rebels that can be used for your workbench. Driving the Rebels is a 1a Buck Puck from LED dynamics. Moreover you can have potentiometer based control over the amount of blinding from the light.
